The fifth edition of this practical guide to interdisciplinary instruction focuses on the thinking and reasoning skills mandated by the Common Core State Standards and the content-learning standards required by an increasing number of states. The author provides an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to designing, creating, and implementing unit and lesson plans for all learners. Both pre-service and in-service elementary and middle-school teachers will find Wood’s approach to be comprehensive, with a strong theoretical foundation. Using Wiggins and McTighe’s backward design process, Wood offers specific protocols for creating unit and lesson plans at the elementary and middle-school levels. By emphasizing differential instruction, constructivist educational philosophy, application of skills in meaningful context, and the art of engaging student interest, he demonstrates how diverse student populations can benefit from the interdisciplinary approach. Prospective teachers will learn to create interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary plans that promote problem solving, creativity, and social interaction. Examples abound, with an appendix of sample unit plan designs filled with ideas for lessons and activities.

This exciting, practical guide offers teachers easy-to-implement strategies that help students draw personal meaning from the curriculum. Filled with great tips for engaging learners, this book is a must for any teacher. The authors show how a variety of strategies—cooperative learning, direct instruction, inquiry, reflective writing, and experimentation—can be used to help learners bond with the content. Consider this a teacher-friendly guidebook for creating moments of genuine student understanding and comprehension. For example, this book offers lessons in which students: play the part of television reporters, interviewing other students about content they have learned; create visually complex pictures and graphs to represent information or concepts; use mathematical symbols to capture their understanding of relationship and events inherent in the content; and play a classroom version of the old television game show, "The $10,000 Pyramid," to identify patterns and seek meaning. Each strategy explored in this book provides a unique type of "e-moment" (engaging moment) that connects with students through their learning preferences and styles. Across the curriculum, teachers will learn how to better engage students and increase comprehension by adapting these strategies to their own specific needs.

This book equips professors to address outcome goals in a proactive manner.

Designed to promote reflection, discussion, and action among the entire learning community, Educating Everybody's Children encapsulates what research has revealed about successfully addressing the needs of students from economically, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse groups and identifies a wide range of effective principles and instructional strategies. Although good teaching works well with all students, educators must develop an extensive repertoire of instructional tools to meet the varying needs of students from diverse backgrounds. Those tools and the knowledge base behind them are the foundation of this expanded and revised second edition of Educating Everybody's Children. Each strategy discussed in the book includes classroom examples and a list of the research studies that support it. The most important thing we have learned as a result of the education reform movement is that student achievement stands or falls on the motivation and skills of teachers. We must ensure that all teachers are capable of delivering a standards?based curriculum that describes what students should know and be able to do, and that these standards are delivered by means of a rich and engaging "pedagogy of plenty." By these two acts we can ensure that all schools will be ready and able to educate everybody's children.
